Eight days later, a Costa Mesa Police officer was responding to an unrelated call when he saw Regulus sitting near the entrance to the public library in the Lions Park complex near 18th Street and Park Avenue. He recognized the homeless sex offender from Regulus' many brushes with the law. The officer also knew, having spoken with Regulus' parole officer, that he was not allowed to enter or loiter within prescribed distances of parks, playgrounds and swimming pools, among other locations, as per his parole.
After taking care of the call that brought him to the park, the officer approached Regulus, who was still sitting within the perimeter of the Lions Park complex. A state parole officer was also contacted, and it was confirmed Regulus loitering in that area was a parole violation, according to Costa Mesa Police Lt. Paul Dondero.
Regulus, who was booked into the city jail on suspicion of violating parole, is being held without bail.
